OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Schedule warranty retrieval jobs

  1. To update authorization key, ensure that you have access to index catalog (https://downloads.dell.com/catalog/CatalogIndex.gz).
  2. To get warranty report, ensure that you have access to https://apigtwb2c.us.dell.com.
  3. Ensure that the inventory is run successfully on hosts and chassis.
  4. To use the warranty features of OMIVV, you must have an Internet connection. If your environment requires proxy to reach Internet, ensure that you configure the proxy settings in the Admin portal.
Hardware warranty information is retrieved from Dell Online and displayed by OMIVV. Only the Service Tag is sent and not stored by Dell Online.

In PSC environment with multiple vCenter servers, the chassis warranty runs automatically with every vCenter when the warranty for any vCenter is run. However, warranty does not automatically run if it is not added to chassis credential profile.

NOTE The settings in this page are reset to default each time the configuration wizard is invoked. If you have previously configured a warranty retrieval job, ensure that you replicate that schedule warranty retrieval job in this page before completing the wizard functions so that the previous warranty retrieval is not overridden by the default settings.
  1. On the OMIVV home page, click Settings > vCenter Settings > Data Retrieval Schedule > Warranty Retrieval.
  2. Select the Enable Warranty Data Retrieval (Recommended) check box.
    In PSC environment with multiple vCenter servers, if the schedule for individual vCenter is different and you select the All Registered vCenters option to update the warranty schedule, the warranty schedule settings page displays the default schedule.
  3. Select the warranty data retrieval day and time, and click APPLY.
    NOTE In PSC environment with multiple vCenter servers, if you update the warranty schedule of All Registered vCenters, the update overrides the individual vCenter warranty schedule settings.
